It’s almost never that a Sports Speak Up! submission makes its way to the Journal Sports cover. But it’s your lucky day, Will:
WHILE READING the Albuquerque Journal’s story on the Lobos-Utah State game (from last Saturday) I noticed the attendance in the game stats at 87,367. The Journal had estimated 1,200 fans in the stands while the official attendance was put at 11,611. I assume the 87,367 figure was a season-ending joke by the Journal. I appreciate the humor and got a good laugh out of it. There wasn’t much else to even smile about this season. Thank you Bob Davie for your efforts to bring respect to this program. And thank you Lobos for giving it your best.
